I had always wondered how it's like inside when walking by nail parlours. Presumably like most men, I had never set foot in one. (Aside from the few who take good care of themselves or the subculture of classical and flamenco guitar players who need nails on their picking hand perhaps.)
Well there was a chance to go to a wine, cheese and manicure event, the curious cat in me just jumped on it. Well, I have to say it's a treat and the bonding time while being pampered is quite fun and precious actually. On the technical side, wine glass with a straw is mandatory due to the temporary inability for precise finger use. I had to dig out a mobile phone deep in the purse for one of my friends before the delicate design is cured :)
My good friend and talented designer AP tied the knot, take note of the breathtaking wedding dress she designed! They are the most fun couple I know and the wedding was indeed a blend of unique, hilarious and touching moments. The idea of cap guns for wedding favours is just through the roof! What a riot!
Camera-shy children are drawn by curiosity for the big glowing soft surfaces and temporarily cooperate in some portraits otherwise hard to catch at certain ages. The freshly awaken baby girl was startled by the flash strobe and I switched to using the modelling lamp only. Love the soft light quality and the porcelain-perfect glowing skin and perfect eyes.
